Whether you are visiting the area to explore the unique beauty of Yellowstone National Park or to enjoy winter sports in the Beartooth wilderness, there are a variety of local activities to suit every taste. Silver Willows Cabins are the perfect home base for you and your family.

Snowmobile and ski the backcountry

In winter, you have easy access to the nearby Bannock Trail, which takes you all the way up to Cooke City and the backcountry for snowmobiling, snowshoeing or skiing. From the property, you can ski directly to the Warm Creek Trail in Yellowstone.

Hike the local trails

In spring, summer, and fall, you are minutes from Yellowstone’s northeast entrance or the Beartooth Pass and scenic Chief Joseph Byway. For those interested in hiking, there are many marked trails throughout the national park.

Wildlife watching

Area wildlife is plentiful throughout the year, especially in the nearby Lamar Valley. Keep and eye out for foxes, moose, deer and sometimes bears from the window.

Fish the local streams and raft the rivers

Silver Willows guests enjoy both fly fishing and river rafting during their stays.

In spring and summer, fly fishing is popular in and around Yellowstone. You can even catch fish right on the Silver Willows property!

Most river rafting and float companies operate in the nearby town of Gardiner, Montana, near the north entrance of the park.
